Thanks to everyone in Flint who was a part of the STANDING ROOM ONLY crowd at the Mott Community College Regional Technology Center last Friday. Thanks also to everyone who purchased a copy of Proving Ground to take home. The venue was splendid and the atmosphere was stimulating. I enjoyed meeting the faculty and students at Mott, and seeing so many hometown friends in the audience. Speaking of hometown friends, thanks so much to Lennetta Coney for making my appearance at Mott possible.
One more note: Bill Ballenger’s introduction was one of the best I have ever received (“is that ME he’s talking about?”), and the list of previous speakers was awe-inspiring. They included Werner Von Braun, R. Buckminster Fuller, Arthur SchlesingerJr., Margaret Mead, William Shirer, Allen Ginsburg, Dick Gregory, Alex Haley, Bill Moyers, Spike Lee, and many more.Share
